(KSL News) An ammonia leak in Salt Lake City is contained this morning.

The leak came from a refrigerating unit in a building that's used to store or prepare food, near 1800 West 1700 South.

Crews were called after workers at a nearby post office smelled the ammonia.

Fire officials cleared the scene around 11:00 last night. They say ammonia levels in the air were so low, the public was never in any danger.
